It is my great pleasure to invite you to the Society of Wetland Scientists 2024 Annual Meeting in Taiwan. This conference, the first SWS annual meeting to be held in Asia, will take place in Taipei and Tainan, November 12-17, 2024. The SWS Asia Chapter, together with the Taiwan Wetland Society, have planned an exciting program around the theme, Wetlands and Climate Change: Mitigation and Adaptation. SWS 2024 will be an outstanding opportunity to hear from wetland researchers and professionals at the leading edge of blue carbon initiatives, net-zero emissions planning, sustainable resource use and development, community-led resilience planning, and wetland science more generally. The meeting features a wonderful array of field excursions to some of Taiwan’s most amazing wetlands – at a time of year when migratory waterbirds also congregate there!
It’s hard to imagine a better way to network and share ideas than experiencing Taiwan with wetland colleagues from around the world. I do hope to see you in Taipei, Taiwan.
President, Society of Wetland Scientists.
